Danni has discovered she has a secret talent: she doesn’t just understand animals – she can become them too! A unique and inventive story by an award-winning writer.

When Danni chooses to spend the school holidays with her godmother, Claire, she thinks she will find a kindred spirit. She doesn’t bank on meeting the mysterious Finlay Black, or Claire being on the look-out for the Panther of Argyll, the legendary beast which supposedly roams the woods around her cottage.

And she doesn’t bank on discovering that she has the ‘animal spirit’. This rare and unique ability not only gives Danni a special empathetic link with animals – but the ability to become them!

But there is a price for letting the animal within loose.

Panthers are wild, primal, strong . . . and most of all, they are free. So why would Danni remain human when all of this is within her grasp?


Lisa Tuttle's best fiction is like a slow settling of vast planes of thought and emotion-luminous, quiet, wry, and often bitter
The New York Review of Science Fiction on Lisa Tuttle
She brings to the literature a subtlety and power, which, sometimes shading into horror, is a quite distinctive voice demanding to be heard . . . exceptional, very female, art
Independent on Sunday on Lisa Tuttle
A great storyteller who defies labels, a fine writer talking about feelings and emotions we all have experienced some time in our lives.
Infinity Plus on Lisa Tuttle
Lisa Tuttle has been writing remarkable, chilling short stories and powerful, haunting novels for many years now, and doing it so easily and so well that one almost takes it, and her, for granted
